Here's a film with a couple of nice glimpses of the prototype.

Nice footage!

There's loads on the British Pathe website, this link should work, if not, just type 'Vickers VC10' in the search box :D

Yes I've seen that before, I think it was posted on here. Very cool but I didn't have the patience to watch almost an hour of it so skipped through :oops:

Only 70% of the pre-flight checklist is actually recorded!!
It all comes together at about min16 with the emergency briefing, atc, cabin and ground crew interractions.

Since doing it there have been more modifications! The heat transfer rate of the EGT is more correct and the supersonic jet blast at 93%n2 is more realistic.

It's not an easy aircraft to model at all!
